Britain has no overall strategy for leaving the European Union and splits in Prime Minister Theresa May's Cabinet could delay a clear negotiating position for six months, according to a memo for the government that was leaked to the Times newspaper. The document, prepared by consultancy firm Deloitte for the government department that supports the prime minister and her Cabinet, casts Britain's top team in a chaotic light: May is trying to control key Brexit questions herself while her senior ministers are divided and the civil service is in turmoil.May's spokeswoman said the Deloitte memo was unsolicited, had nothing to do with the government and had no credence.Such a disorderly portrayal of the government underscores both the extent of the turmoil unleashed by the June 23 vote to leave the EU and the uncertainties ahead as May tries to pull Britain out of the world's biggest trading bloc.
